Fish Cake Salad

1 Comment

We try to eat seafood at least once each week.  It is usually a simple baked fish.  Sometimes it is a shrimp stir-fry or clams with macaroni.  I have been wanting to try something different, so this time I was aiming for fish burgers.  But I didn’t have burger buns… so…. I put it on a salad!
To make the burgers, I baked up a white, somewhat flaky fish.
When it was cooked, I broke it up and mixed it with bread crumbs, egg, celery, onions, and whatever herbs I had on hand. 
I shaped them into patties and fried them in coconut oil.
In the meantime, I boiled up some beets for the salad.  When they were cool, I sliced them up.
I stumbled upon some walnuts when I cleaned out the freezer, so I toasted them up.
The rest of the salad was arugula, cranberry-cinnamon goat cheese with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.  
When the fish cakes were crispy, I put them on the salad.  It was one of my best ideas yet!

One thought on “Fish Cake Salad

  1. Your fish patties look yummy. We can fish and make patties. We enjoy them very much. When I fry mine, I dip them in a season cormeal mix (andy's is the name of it) before frying.
    I posted this recipe sometime ago, your fish would probably work just fine in this recipe: http://osagebluffquilter.blogspot.com/search?q=creole
